    Roleplay as Empowerment: How to Introduce Characters into Your Sex Life

    By Ashley Inman

    “Roleplay” is a word that evokes different things for different people, bringing to mind everything from elegant elves to naughty nurses. Roleplaying in your sex life is a way to celebrate and explore titillating and exciting aspects of your psyche which can tie deeply, and sometimes inexplicably, to those tingly feelings of arousal we all live for.

    By Aimee Murillo
